Donnie Eugene Eade

First of all, I don't know where to start. I've had all these mixed feelings. Sadness that you are gone, and happiness in the fact that you are not suffering any more. Also, now you are safe in Jehovah's memory.

I look forward to seeing you in paradise with no more suffering. Just know that you were loved by so many. That is why I count it as a privilege that Jehovah allowed me to take care of you.

I am happy for the bond that we built together because you were more than my spiritual father, you were my family. You will definitely be missed.

With all my love, Susan Baker
